Gears 5: How to save

The campaign for Gears 5 can be over 20 hours long, so you are going to want to take a break from all the killing. You are likely wondering how to save so that you can take that well-deserved breather.

How to use Save feature in Gears 5

Well, I have a short and simple answer, you don’t have to do anything at all. Like most other games of this generation and especially shooters, it has an automatic save system. When you hit a checkpoint within the game, on any level, it will automatically save your progress.

You will know when a save is happening thanks to the word checkpoint and saving symbol located in the lower-left corner of the screen.

Manual saving

A lot of game will give the option of a manual save, and you may want to perform a save of your own to be sure that any progress you made can’t be lost. Unfortunately, Gears 5 does not feature manual saves. However, the game does an automatic save very frequently, so you don’t need to worry about finding yourself back at the beginning of a mission when you were so close to the end.

The auto-save function has been designed to minimize disruption to your experience. Meaning, you can make your way through the story as slowly or as quickly as you would like, hunting for collectibles and components will not hinder your progress.

While there may be no manual save feature, the game does save its self frequently. Now jump in and tear those locusts apart.
